I added another shot from the inside of the furnace at Dinkey Mill.  This floor to ceiling shot in portrait orientation gives a better view of the dimensions than the other two landscape shots.

Still, it looks like something from a science fiction movie.

Wow, that one's in great shape!  I wonder if they were designed from the start to just be left to rust.  I don't think I ever saw one painted, and I guess the heat from the burning would have destroyed any paint anyway.

Domino Pond and Cattle Duster trails are awesome now.  Wildlife viewing is great too.  Highlights from yesterday's ride were watching hill topping butterflies doing aerial acrobatics, and a posse of chest thumping turkeys in full display.  I tried to get closer to the turkeys for a photo, but a tree fell and startled them.

Assorted photos from a Saturday ride in Henry Coe State Park.

I love to ride in the park after a light rain.  There is virtually no mud thanks to the drought, but everything was so fresh.  I even stopped to eat some foragables and party with the wildlife.  (Okay, maybe that last part is a little exaggeration.)  I waited for sunset on Willson Peak, and descended the steep park trails in the dusk with lights.

Listening to Prog Rock group Gentle Giant, which sounds kind of like this looks.

Join me for a few impressions of tonight's sunset.  #sooc


Got a release from some responsibilities in the late afternoon.  The clouds were looking good so I headed for Russian Ridge.  These photos are from a new entrance along Alpine Rd. on the south western corner of the preserve.  This is good alternative to Borel Hill for photos.

The inside of a very large furnace, a ride across a bowstring-arch timber truss bridge, and a visit to a familiar mountain.  All in a day's adventure.

Saturday grab bag:  Some odd trees, a turkey or two, and the sunset.

I stopped for the symmetry and the infinite horizon, I did not expect the egret.

Mohave National Preserve.

Kelso Dunes were interesting from a rock hound perspective.  By random chance, a park volunteer was there to tell the tale of the geologic history.  It was certainly worth getting off the freeway for a leg stretch and some fresh winter air.

Kelso Train Depot has a nice museum, but I found the adjacent closed post office building more photo worthy.
